to date of pope benedict xvi. >>> good evening and welcome to a second look. pope john paul ii came to san francisco at the time that the city was at the grips of the aids epidemic. what the pope did helped to comfort those with aids. he reached out and touched them offering a blessing an hope of healing. we have a report from that day. beginning with rita williams who was at mission dolores with the pope's visit to the california's oldest mission. >> reporter: john paul ii warmly greeted those along the center aisle of the pope. some of the 900 invited guests. the pope then approached the nine pews of aids patients. and certainly the most moving moment came when 4-year-old brendan ororke reached out to hug the holy father. little brendan contracted aids from a blood transfusion at birth. the pope then moved to other aids sufferers, most of them gay. it was the first time the leader of a catholic church has met directly with aids sufferers. from there the pope went alone to pray in the old mission. the oldest building in san francisco. in prepared remarks the pope proclaimed the unconditio
election, benedict xvi revised that to make sure the new pope had very widespread support throughout the world. he reintroduced the old condition that the pope has to achieve at least a 2/3 majority. in this case, 78 votes is a minimum out of 112. that is 2/3, plus one. because 112 is not divisible by 3. it would be extraordinary if the pope had only achieved it by 78 votes. he probably had even more. that indicates to me that, as i said, if it is not a compromise candidate, it is somebody who the cardinals, a considerable number of the cardinals decided very, very early, probably last evening or even early this morning, that was the man that they believed was best equipped to lead the church through this very difficult period, where there are so many huge challenges, varied challenges. they are so varied. we are trained in north america and europe to be very eurocentric and america centric -- americacentric. in africa, there -- perhaps crisis is too much. the problems and challenges of the church in africa are things like animism. i hope i don't sound condescending. i imagine there

it with meeting with meeti meeting pope benedict the 16 td. lauren green is live with more for us. >> this is the most exciting day. we made the comment it is sunny this morning. yesterday we were waiting for the white smoke it was raining and pouring and frenching. pope francis made an appearance. there's a lot of ex ub brakes because of that. let me bring in father melcher. before we knew anything about the conclave now we have pope francis. he's a series of first a first from the southern hemisphere the first from america the first jesuwit he is the first pope francis. >> because there are so many unprecedented situations i was shocked. i looked around i said who is this guy? whaerd the word in latin. there are only two georges, george pell and hojorge. he appeared on the balcony all of us rushed to look at him and to welcome him cheering and the crowds were going wild. >> the parps were saying talking about the odds makers they had their favorites and long shots. he was on nobody's list. why is that? >> if you look at perhaps other segments of society other people had perhaps
in the teaching of pope benedict. what benedict did was to teach us about jesus. this man is going to show us jesus' face and i'm absolutely convinced of that. and it's a moment of great surprise, and an institution that prides itself on tradition, and sometimes a tradition that doesn't really free us. he's going to take us back to the tradition that's freeing. and to remind us who we are. because every time -- we have had some difficulties over the past years. >> i think back to eight years ago when i was here. and the sadness, obviously, following the death of pope john paul ii. and to be in the square on this night, there was such joy there, and such reverence. such silence at times when people were kind of reflecting and praying. praying silently, sometimes praying out loud. but the silence really struck me. >> yeah, the silence, and also when he came out on the loggia, hello, everybody, good evening. not a normal greeting. and he didn't follow the script. he decided to connect with people. this is a bishop coming to meet his people. rome has been without a bishop. he wanted to bond with
pope benedict. i don't know this gentleman. >> pope benedict used 12 individuals including cardinals bishops priests a monk, a husband and wife and two children i thought was very interesting in reading the history of this. pope francis has chosen six cardinals instead. but it can vary depending upon the wishes of the new pope. >> well, i think also, it's very interesting, i read that they're going to be the main celebrants will be the patriarchs of the eastern catholic churches which i think can be quite significant. we could read a lot into that, seeking to unite in a more solid way, east and west. >> those of you who may have been following the conclave immediately upon the appointment of the pope, all of the parties in the conclave in the sistine chapel engaged in what is known as acts of obedience and pledging fidelity to the new pope. but this is done publicly also to remind the audience of the elevation of the pope. now, after the inaugural mass i understand that, father the new pope will visit the tomb of st. paul, apostle for the gentiles at the basilic
. this time around, you don't have a death. you have a retirement. pope benedict is still alive. and so there is much more of a joyful atmosphere, i think. >> that's right. as large as the crowd in the square was here last night, you were here eight years ago, you remember that massive tidal wave of humanity that rushed through rome in the immediate aftermath of john paul's death. they estimate between 5 million and 10 million people came to the city in those days. there was a very atmosphere that was quiet, reverent, somber, because these people believed the church just lost a great pope and a great man. this time there is no equivalent outpouring of grief because pope benedict xvi isn't dead. >> there is an urgency, an excitement. anderson has been walking around. you know the city very well. being around the people here today, they want to know who the pope is. the pageantry of it. there is also an expectation and an urgency here. this is a moment, as we're saying on the screen, smoke could come at any moment, this is true. we're finishing up the tallying of the last vote of the day
thing that struck me, he keeps referring to himself, not as the pope. you'll remember, benedict, and john paul ii. the pope says. the pope is here. what he said, the bishop of rome. he keeps underscoring this part of the ministry as bishop of rome, which is a slightly different emphasis. >> i thought there was a sense of accountability here. he asked people in positions of responsibility, and economic, political and social life, all of the men and women of goodwill, let us all be protectors of creation. he took this opportunity to reach out to the crowd who is there. >> he knows who is there, too. he spoke not only to heads of families, heads of household. but he talked to civil authorities, directly. recognizing this message is going out to all the world. this is part of his mission as a preacher at that level, to speak to every segment of society. >> let's remember, too, he took the name pope francis. pope francis, who prayed with brother sun, sister moon. the environmental message here should not be missed. talk about protecting creation. it came up a few times. remember, pop
the church bells rings which had been silent since benedict stepped down. we all crowded in and watched and i was stunned. we didn't believe it was possible. first jesuit. >> bruni: you heard his name mentioned before though, right? >> he was mentioned prominently in the last conclave but not all that prominently this time around. which was giving outlines and thumbnail stretchs for the last several weeks. so it was stunning. >> bruni: president degioia, as surprising to you as father mcshane? >> it was, this combination is truly extraordinary and poses a unique moment for the church >> bruni: had you hoped for him? was he on your mind at small >> no. like father mcshane this came as a surprise but we were all wondering whether this might be the moment where the conclave might turn to the south. look to where the church is right now in the americas, this is the largest part of the roman catholic church and the church in the southened s growing and we thought this might be an opportunity to be inclusive in terms of the leadership. >> rose: father mad mad reese, you're a jesuit. was he on your
to get it back together but this was a mission of pope benedict xvi and your sense on whether a moment like this, which is so magnificently explicitly catholic is something that can advance that process. >> yeah, i certainly think it can. i was present at the inaugural mass of pope benedict and when you are present at a ceremony like that and you see people from every continent and perhaps every country in the world and people from every religion, the symbolism, you want it to become substance, you want it to be more than symbolic, it's not just a great emotional moment, it's a great spiritual moment and it gets you thinking about what might be. i mean, it's no accident. you said earlier about, you know, the power evidenced by the vatican when you see people from all over the world and other religions coming. it's not just power, it's inspiration and moments like this, they're grand, they seem lofty but they're to lift you up to help you see the possibilities and with this effort with the orthodox representatives there, with the representatives from other religions, it's an expression
. ashley: it is such an unprecedented move last month pope benedict xvi resigning saying he could not conduct the duties of the office anymore. a big moment. tracy: the vatican saying right now he probably will not attend the inaugural services. with that, we're going to send this to liz claman taking you through the last hour of tradi trading. stay with us. thank you very much. we may get the honor in this hour to announce just to has been named pope and what we will do throughout this hour, keep up this shot to route on our screen, what we call the big little. the big screen might have guessed that we are speaking with. a whole bunch of red business guests. we will keep this shot up. tracy and ashley. over 1 billion catholics. many others in the world might not be catholic just dying to hear who this brand new pope will be. riright now he is being fitted y the people taylor and his new papal garments. the issues, of course, doesn't product issues? prod amex issues. and that is a publicly traded company on the italian exchange. as we look at all of this, the big question will be
. starting with pope benedict's resignation, there was something very unusual in the catholic church's history. chances for change, for firsts, for novelty. you have that resignation. then you have the unusual energy at the general congregation for foreign cardinals saying they wanted more accountability and they didn't want to just rush into things. now we have pope francis. he is a first on so many levels. he is the first pope from south america. he is the first pope since the original, peter, from outside europe. he is the first pope to call himself francis, which is very significant, because francis of assisi was about humility, eschewing all the trappings of wealth and helping the neediest. that is the message the church needs now more than ever so the name is very significant. as a side note being elected on five ballots hasn't happened in a hundred years. this cardinal bergoglio needs a little context. this is the man we believe finished second to benedict in the last conclave. and just today a retired cardinal had told us, hey, you know, you're not mentioning bergoglio. why n
it right here, america. >>> while pope benedict departed with the help of a helicopter and twirt, we got an update on the search for his successor and the age old form of smoke signals. black smoke signifying a look of a decision. but awaiting that smoke to turn white, our anchor. >> reporter: greetings from rome. what a day it was. you can feel the weight of history in the air. the overriding suspense in this city. who will be the next pope? today the secret and mysterious process to choose the next pope began. it was just really an awesome day here. storm clouds gathered over st. peter's basilica almost as if god himself wanted a somber setting for a solemn day in the history of the catholic church. inside the cardinals and symbolically all the faithful gathered for one last mass. a reminder that this whole election in the belief of catholics is a kind of worship, a kind of prayer to pick the next pope. outside in the square, a few pilgrims, some romans and the curious gathered in the afternoon gloom waiting for this moment to begin. in solemn procession singing the litany of the saint
pope benedict was chosen and co -- and father bergoglio was the runner up. what do we know? >> the resistance that he was not a political person and that he walks the talk, if you like. -- there is a sense that he is not a political person, any he walks the talk if you like. he did not have a coke. he did not have a chauffeur. he very much wanted to be seen to be for the people, so he really did have that aura around him. it has come as a surprise that had he has been elected because he is 76. this suggests the cardinals do not worry about another resignation. this has set a new direction for the church. >> how unusual is it for a catholic cardinal to be wandering around. this is a very high organization. is this a mark of somebody in a different role at? >> people call him jorge. that is very telling. there are a lot of cardinals like fat. we tend to think of them as those concerned with hierarchy and break. i think he is endeared toward st. francis and maybe want to walk in his way. >> i saw one of the key characteristics the pope had to have was a sense of humor. do you
, as the cardinal of cable, i'm giving you nave to narthex coverage of pope benedict's resignation in my new series "popewatch: inde-schism 2013." [cheers and applause] remembers -- remembers folks -- remember, it has been over 700 years since anyone has voluntarily depoped themselves. [laughter] well, buckle your chausable, because there are dramatic new developments. we all know that when a cardinal is elevated to the papacy, he becomes the heir of st. peter there choose a new name. so, naturally, now that benedict xvi is leaving office, he has asked that we call him simply: benedict the xvi. [laughter] okay. okay. that's understandable. he doesn't want to have to get new towels and stuff. [laughter] but that's not all. he says he's still going to be pope emiritus and his holiness, continue to wear the white robes and live in the vatican. [laughter] folks, that means there's going to be two pontiffs. we're one pope over the line-- sweet jesus, one pope over the line. [laughter] [cheers and applause] it'll be chaos. you can't have one vatican with two popes. it's like gotham with multiple batmans.
: the beloved benedict xvi who we give all of our gratitude. >> applause and praise that benedict did not hear, at least not in person. he's in seclusion at the papal summer residence. as for the man praising him, cardinal anglo sedano, the dean of cardinals over 80 too old to help choose a pope or in all likelihood to be chosen himself. who among them might be? those who say publicly don't really know. those who might know, the cardinals they left st. peters. one last moment, in plain view, retreated inside the sistine chapel where they took an oath. then, uttering extra on this outside all the vatican official closed the doors and the cardinals got to work. all day, people waited in the rain for the mass for the cardinals for a chance to see, perhaps, a new pope. >> i think it's wonderful. i think benedict was a great pope. everyone is excited to see who the next pope will be with great anticipati anticipation. how different and how much the same he will be. >> as the evening deepened, all eyes on the stove that would signal white smoke for a pope and black for not. >> if we got white smoke,

the way pope benedict xvi hoped and that could be part of the reason he's no longer pope. >> it's fair to say there was infighting and lack of enthusiasm for everything the pope did. there was disorder and mismanagement on the order of a butler stealing documents and no one finding out. the curia is filled with many interesting people. popes always bring in new people but i have a feeling that the people who are greeting the pope tonight are very pleased to have this man as pope. >> shepard: with the overriding function of the church to spread the gospel, and to bring people to christ, is this man -- well, he has a daunting task ahead, but -- >> start with the name he picked. saint francis, probably the most beloved saint in the world, a model and inspiration not only for franciscans but every catholic. noncatholics love saint francis. i think there's going to be a speer of love surrounding the pope. i think he'll do a great job. >> shepard: thank you so much. we'll have continuing coverage through the afternoon and evening here on fox news. i'll be back with you tonight at 7:00 easter

was finished. unique situation, the place we are in the vatican now. with pope benedict still aliv alive. >> yes. this is completely unprecedented in modern history. really, we have never had a pope resign for reasons that the pope did that he was tired and that he needed to rest. on the other hand, he said he would dedicate his life to prayer for the church. pope benedict, pope emeritus said he would swear his obedience to pope francis. >> bret: how will he be different? >> there is another st. francis. he will be different because he has a different personality, a different the emphasis. the fact he comes from the new world. he has that mentality in the new word, which is kind of like an explorer, setting out. i think he is going to be adventurous in the good sense of the world. try to find new ways to proclaim the gospel. as a jez it with, h it jesuit, d man. i know they are serious scholars and they are demanding on the students. i think he will be demanding on us as faithful to serve the church with our whole hearts. >> bret: the first jesuit pope. what is interesting today, i heard
to be watching. because this is when in the last conclave, this vote is when pope benedict xvi was chosen. even though we hear this conclave may take longer than last time, this was the vote they're about to start right now. it's a good time to be on smoke watch. now we have some headlines today. there was a vatican presser, an opportunity with father lombardi and a couple others came out and were talking. we're going to play you a little sound from it if we have it to play. they said they were getting a lot of phone calls about smoke in the sistine chapel. take a listen. we don't have it. i'll tell you what they said. they said we got a lot of reports about smoke in the sistine chapel but the cardinals are all okay and the frescoes, the paintings are all okay. they did not say there was no problem with smoke. when i bring in john allen in a little bit you'll understand why there is a basis for that cause of speculation, given what's happened in the past. we also learned that the pope emeritus, pope benedict xvi has been watching on tv a little of theses going on, the entrance to the conclave,
had been widely mentioned as essentially the runner up to pope benedict. he was someone who quietly was making his mark on the church. as you mentioned, martin, he was someone who got great respect because of the very quiet and simple way that he lived. and the way he lived his belief in ministering to the poor. in being humble. he is someone who is very well liked. very well known. it's also interesting that out of that last conclave, some documents that leaked said that as the vote was being taken and he looked up at that magnificent painting in the sistine chapel of the last judgment, at least one cardinal thought he was looking at it and saying, please, god, don't do this to me. he is a very humble man. and yet a very warm man. and certainly we are seeing celebrations throughout latin america, in churches across the world, where this growing population is really so enthusiastic about this church. and a man who has had great compassion. a man who has shown time and time again that he is willing to be humble but now the leader of 1.2 billion catholics. and you have to wonder, much
with the archbishop who was a runner up to pope benedict xvi. he told the crowd the cardinals had to go to the end of the world to find a new pope while praying for him and pope mr. advertise benedict. he's a jesuit the first in his order to ascend to the papal throne. their mission is focused on the front lines of their congregation. jorge mario bergoglio known for his humility, abandonment of the trappings that come with the office. he's known for his advocacy for the poor. he's spoken about how globalization has hurt the under privileged noting latin america is a region that's grown the most while reducing misreary the least. catholics hoping for a pope that might give in on some be social issues. he's believed to be orthodox in bitter control and same sex marriage. he's taken priests to task for refusing to baptize children born out of wedlock. he left with these words pray for me i'll see you soon. >> a wonderful report. i liked the part about riding buses i really do. sounds like he's more of a pastoral priest. >> that's what you you've heard about him. he spent most of his career in argenti
ratzinger, now pope benedict xvi, pope emeritus. bergoglio is the compromised candidate, 76 years old, but he could be a unifier. think about it. that was quite some prediction. i didn't hear it on any other network. so congratulations. but tell me, he's a fascinating man. he did come quite close before, as you said, which people hadn't really picked up on. but he is the first latin american pope. how significant is that? because they could have gone for an italian, they could have gone for the first african pope, but they went with latin america. why do you think they did that and why him? >> reporter: well, it's interesting. a lot of decisions always make sense in hindsight, right, piers? before bergoglio was written off by many because he had had finished second, he was older. there were some concerns about his health. and also there was some concerns about his reluctance to take on this kind of task, very simple life, taking the bus to work and all the different anecdotes we have heard. and yet he's also the perfect choice. latin america is where this church is growing strongest.
